I don't think that counts as an infix under most definitions, because
it occurs between one morpheme (_urs-_) and another (_-a_), rather
than right inside one morpheme. However, there are some who think
that the diminutive _-it-_ in Spanish is an infix. I don't know what
the evidence in favor of that is, other than _azúcar_ + _-it-_
yielding _azuquítar_. It's been discussed on the list before.
